HIV, HEP B, & HEP C BLOOD TESTS FOR AGES 16+
All athletes age 16 and above are required to have completed HIV, HEP B, and HEP C laboratory screening. These tests need to be dated after June 11th, 2016 to be considered valid, and should be submitted to Muaythai Ontario in advance of the tournament.
If you have not already completed your laboratory testing then please be aware that it can take between 2-3 weeks to receive the results back from the lab. Please do not wait any longer than this week to start the process, even if there is no opponent in your division- someone may register next week and by then it will be too late.
No leeway will be given to athletes who do not have up to date medical forms and results.
TOURNAMENT TO TAKE PLACE ON SATURDAY JUNE 10TH
Over 120 athletes have registered for the 2017 Provincial Championships so far, and 12 days remain until registration closes. Based on the current registrations, Muaythai Ontario will be reducing competition to one day- Saturday, June 10th.
Competition will take place across two rings simultaneously, so be prepared for an intense day of muaythai!
DIVISIONS CAPPED AT 4 COMPETITORS
With the change to a single day of competition, tournament divisions have been capped at 4 athletes instead of 8, as athletes are permitted to compete a maximum of 2 times in a single day.
Athletes who have registered in a division where the 4 person maximum has already been reached will be contacted by Muaythai Ontario shortly.
ELITE “QUALIFIERS” AND A CLASS DIVISIONS MERGED
The 10-19 experience class (A Class) and 20+ experience class (“Qualifiers”) will be merged together, making A Class include all athletes with 10+ contests experience. The rules of each division are the same, so no adjustments are required on part of the athletes.
These changes will be reflected on the website by Wednesday, May 24th.
DIVISION MANAGEMENT BEGINS
Starting today, athletes who are registered in a division without opponents will be contacted about changing divisions in order to facilitate more competition. Many athletes have opponents available who are very close to their registered division, and a slight change in weight, age, or experience can create a match for both competitors.
